A criminal threat can be made in person, through electronic communications or over the phone. It is something that makes another person reasonably afraid. Sometimes the person allegedly making the threat might not even consider his or her actions as such. Regardless how the threat is communicated, it is a serious charge requiring experienced defense. A criminal threats conviction is a strike under California law and can affect a person’s ability to receive probation for any future felony offense. It also means that a third offense could be punishable by 25 years to life in prison. The Law Offices of Bruce M. Margolin, Esq., helps clients faced with this situation.
Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Bruce Margolin understands that the prosecution of criminal threats is largely based in the accusations of the victim, based upon the words used, and that people often say things they don’t really mean in moments of anguish. He demands that the prosecution prove that terror was intended, imminent and beyond a reasonable doubt.
Bruce Margolin is dedicated to defeating the prosecution at the earliest stage. His in-depth knowledge of the law, his political influence and his reputation with prosecutors and the courts for winning, often result in the early-stage dismissal and successful dispositions of charges.
